Workiva Achieves FedRAMP Authorization to Operate

Workiva
(NYSE:WK), a leader in data collaboration, reporting and compliance
solutions, today announces that it has received Authorization to Operate
(ATO) under the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program
(FedRAMP). Workiva, which worked with the Tennessee Valley Authority on
its application, is now a FedRAMP
LI-SaaS provider, signifying Workiva’s ongoing commitment to meet
and maintain FedRAMP’s stringent cybersecurity requirements.

FedRAMP
is a standardized, government-wide approach to security assessment,
authorization and continuous monitoring for cloud products and services
to help agencies migrate their existing systems to cloud-based software.
The program also allows agencies to follow the Government’s Cloud
First policy that mandates cloud services be assessed and considered
first when comparing them to on-premise infrastructure options.

With the new authorization, Federal Government agencies can more easily
adopt the Wdesk
platform to help streamline a wide range of financial analyses and
reporting.

“We look forward to helping Federal agencies find new ways to solve
complex data challenges,” said Marty Vanderploeg, CEO of Workiva.
“Earning the Authority to Operate from FedRAMP is a milestone for us and
recognizes our work to continuously strengthen the security and safety
of Wdesk. These efforts benefit all of our customers.”

Wdesk enables users to collaborate at the same time in a controlled
environment with a recorded history of every change. Inside Wdesk, data
is linked together – in spreadsheets, documents, presentations and
reports. Government agencies will be able to rely on the data
transparency and consistency that Wdesk provides to help mitigate risk
and have confidence in their data-driven decisions.

Workiva offers General
Services Administration (GSA) pricing through its Government
software distributor, Vertosoft. GSA pricing ensures preferred pricing
without the need for bids.
